Amy left eBay Europe in 2011 to co-found Global Gratitude Alliance after 14 years of working in finance, operations, project management, accounting/tax in the U.S. and Europe.
Once an orphan herself, Amy is passionate about healing and transformation for children who have lost their mothers and for women and men who most need to reclaim their inner mother. She’s served in the non-profit sector as a volunteer, international program manager, finance manager, and board member focusing on projects benefiting orphans and vulnerable children in the U.S. and abroad.
Based in San Francisco, Amy splits her time between serving as Executive Director of Global Gratitude Alliance and pursuing her MS in Global Studies and Nonprofit Management at Northeastern University. She graduated with honors from Arizona State University with a BS in Business/Accounting and is a licensed CPA (inactive) in California.
Amy is also working on her first book – a story about her journey growing up as an adoptee in a biracial family, reuniting with her birth parents, and learning to embrace gratitude as a powerful catalyst for change.
Amy says, “Everyone can find something to be grateful for every day – however big or small. By embracing gratitude as inspiration for giving back (or rather, giving forward), anyone can be an everyday activist, creating a meaningful, purpose-filled life not only for herself but for the lives of others around the world. And that is something to be truly grateful for.”
